Bay Area, Califo...
I was inspired to make this from all of the varsity jackets that are trickling into fashion. I didn’t use a pattern; I just traced my old sweatshirt and started from there. It wasn’t really that hard, the collar was pretty tricky, but all in all it was pretty fun. I used snaps for the closure and a light knit for the jacket itself. I wouldn’t wear it for cold weather, since I made it pretty light. (As you can see, I didn’t add a lining, so it looks really messy on the inside.)
